Bug Description

UCS (and other third party component archives) needs a way to download the source code of a component and add it to the current project's build system. This suggests that the qmake build templates for Ubuntu SDK projects need some sort of a "hook" or identifiable entry point so that ucs knows where to add new components to.

After discussion at UOS in early 2015, it was decided that the best way to handle components would be to have them built from source when required rather than stored as binary, and that the SDK team were the best people to build and handle that, so further work on components is blocked until the SDK team have time to deliver that.
